Anna Franzonello over at NRO’s Corner pens a great piece debunking what I’ve heard many liberals spit out in defense of the Obama Administration’s HHS mandate: many states (some claims say 28, some leave it as “many”) already have this mandate in place. Ms. Franzonello takes that apart:
First, it should be noted that mandated coverage for contraceptives is actually unprecedented in nearly half the states…..
Second, many of the states with contraceptive mandates provide broader exemptions than HHS, and thus the HHS mandate and corresponding regulations would trump reasoned state protections.
Did you catch that? Not only is this an affront on religious freedom but it is stepping on state laws already in place. Go read the whole thing.
GorT is an eight-foot-tall robot from the 51ˢᵗ Century who routinely time-travels to steal expensive technology from the future and return it to the past for retroinvention. The profits from this pay all the Gormogons’ bills, including subsidizing this website. Some of the products he has introduced from the future include oven mitts, the Guinness widget, Oxy-Clean, and Dr. Pepper. Due to his immense cybernetic brain, GorT is able to produce a post in 0.023 seconds and research it in even less time. Only ’Puter spends less time on research. GorT speaks entirely in zeros and ones, but occasionally throws in a ڭ to annoy the Volgi. He is a massive proponent of science, technology, and energy development, and enjoys nothing more than taking the Czar’s more interesting scientific theories, going into the past, publishing them as his own, and then returning to take credit for them. He is the only Gormogon who is capable of doing math. Possessed of incredible strength, he understands the awesome responsibility that follows and only uses it to hurt people.
